    Transition from present social caste system of colonialism is brutal.

    in Social Networking

    Though ‘THE BLACK CODES’ pervade all levels of the union states’ governments, the HEART AND SOUL ENFORCERS of the Christian Black Codes are the Union States – At Large -. All state governments, quasi-government agencies, State courts, Municipal, city and Borough courts and de facto, maritime and admiralty traffic tribunals are European Colonial Christian Black Codes enforcing corporations. They use coercion to force licensing, permits, State (colonists) certification, etc., on the indigenous Moors.


    Borough courts: An inferior Court of record for the trial of civil actions which by charter, custom or otherwise, is, or ought to be, holden in a borough, but does not include a County Court. (Municipal Corporations Act, 1882, s. 7.)


    Municipal Corporations Act 1835


    Boroughs had existed in England and Wales since mediæval times. By the late Middle Ages they had come under royal control, with corporations established by royal charter. These corporations were not popularly elected: characteristically they were self-selecting oligarchies, were nominated by tradesmen's guilds or were under the control of the lord of the manor.


    Oligarchies: small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution

    Great Loop Radio: Documentary of a Great Loop Cruise done in 1906

    in Travel

    Our guest will be Bob Reynolds, the grandson of boat builder Scott J. Matthews, who did the Great Loop in 1906. Bob provided photos and his grandfather's written account of the journey for a new documentary. Below is the info from a press release about the documentary, and a preview can be seen here: http://www.matthewsboatownersassoc.com/

    "In 1890, Scott J. Matthews founded the Matthews Boat Company in Bascom, Ohio. Fifteen years later, in 1906, Matthews, designed and built a 70 foot yacht. This vessel was capable of taking himself, and family of four, plus two others, on a 9,000 mile trip.

    The adventure, of almost one year, transversed the eastern half of the United States, which is now referred to as the "Great Loop". This trip was a "first" for a private yacht and its success resulted in moving the Matthews Company to Port Clinton in 1906.

    This past year, in collaboration with the Maritime Museum of Sandusky, a documentary was made. It includes many of the original photos taken along the way. The narrative is based on the written account of Scott Matthews."
